Could you please provide examples of what the requested activity fees found on elementary school supply lists might be used for since most likely field trips and in-school programs will not be taking place?

A. The regulations posted on the school supply page provide information on all school supplies. Here is what is says about the activity fee (it is not used for field trips or in-school programs). If you want to know specifically what it will be used for in your child’s class, please reach out to the teacher once school starts.

Teachers may request up to $10 during the course of the year for special projects that will complement the curriculum or for student recognition activities. Grade level classroom activity accounts must be established with the District through the Extraclassroom Charter process for deposit and use of these funds. All checks for deposit in these activity funds must be made payable to Shenendehowa Central School District and deposit and disbursement procedures outlined in the Extraclassroom guidance for classroom accounts must be followed.
